Haven't been around for a bit taking care of non prostate health issues and just read something about the Tulsa Procedure. Sounds a little like the FLA procedure Dr's Sperling and Karamanian were doing and in fact, I think the Sperling Center is going to be offering Tulsa soon, so maybe the same thing?
Anyone here have it yet? How does it differ or not differ from Dr. K's procedure? Is it covered by insurance?
Also, has Dr. K. finally published his study data? Any longer term reports here on how well FLA patients are doing? And lastly, anything else new and interesting treatment/procedure wise in the last year or so?
For those that remember me, I've been treating my bph with self catherization (CIC) for some time now. Still am. I started with almost complete retention holding over a liter of urine to CIC six times a day. Over the course of time my bladder started rehabbing to the point where I was able to stop CIC altogether with a normal PVR. Today, I cath anywhere from zero to six times a day depending on a number of variables. My PVR with normal voids is usually under 100ml which is about what you can expect from a surgery. Still happy with it but always thinking ahead so I came across the TULSA.
Thanks for any help.
